Sage 100cloud accounting software can make your end of year payroll tax calculations easier. Okay, so it won’t make them easier on your wallet, but it will make it easier (and faster) to calculate.
Research shows that one out of every three small business spends 80 hours or more preparing for tax season. That’s two whole weeks out of the year spent on nothing but updating and checking the books to ensure you’re ready for tax season. What if you could cut that time in half or more? What would your business do with the time saved?
Sage 100cloud accounting software offers a comprehensive package to help small businesses manage their finances. It can save you an enormous amount of time preparing for payroll taxes, tax season, or even reconciling your books. Once you’ve made the switch to Sage, you’ll wonder what you did without it.
Isn’t It Too Late to Switch Software?
Many business owners believe they have to wait until January 1 to switch accounting software. That makes sense, in a way. If your fiscal year starts with the calendar year, you may think that it’s smarter to wait until the first of the year to change to new accounting software.
Changing to a new accounting software doesn’t take long, and it’s not difficult to do. Most accounting systems provide a method of downloading data files into a common file format such as CSV, tab- or comma-delineated data files. These files are universal and can be imported into many common accounting software packages, including Sage 100cloud.
With the click of a mouse and a few minutes of your time, you can download your existing data and upload it into Sage. You don’t need to wait until the first of the year when it’s that simple to move files into a new system.
Sage 100cloud Accounting Software and Payroll Taxes
The payroll function module of Sage 100cloud ERP makes preparing payroll taxes, W2, and other payroll compliance needs much easier than spreadsheets or other accounting software. It automatically applies deductions and earnings, prints checks and vouchers complete with year to date earnings and tax information, and calculates employee and employer payroll taxes. Current federal and state tax tables are included. Best of all, it helps you quickly prepare quarterly and annual payroll reports and W-2 forms. It also connects to Federal and State eFiling and Reporting systems, which enables you to e-file.
All of this is found within Sage 100cloud ERP. Not only can you manage all your business accounting and financial transactions quickly and easily, but you can also prepare W2 forms, file your taxes, and update payroll and direct deposit records right from Sage.
Think about working with spreadsheets to tackle this amount of work. Not only do you have to manually download spreadsheet data and upload it to the government W2 system, you must also find and file each form—941 and others—separately. You have to find the information, check it twice on your spreadsheets, and rekey it into the forms.
There’s a lot of room for error with spreadsheets. One mistake, one transposed digit or problematic formula and poof—you’ve overpaid or underpaid taxes, or accidentally left an employee off of the records, or miscalculated your taxes. What a headache!
Sage 100cloud accounting software takes all the guesswork out of payroll preparation. It dramatically shortens the time it takes for you to file payroll, reconcile your books, and fill out the proper forms. Isn’t that a step in the right direction? You owe it to yourself to add Sage 100 accounting software to your company now.
